loool!.. winblows analytics... read again and begin to understand! i am fully satisfied with latest image created for my offline winblows pc! never ever again i will connect the pc to internet, because... see..?!?! i noticed something that may be of interest: some month ago i took the appliance of my (ongoing) favourite vm (1607) from the pc atWork with me and extracted it on the winblows-pc atHome. i think i treated them just slightly different (they're death incarnate) or completely similar. recently i created an image, twice - on both machines, following the exact same steps.. the image created on the offline pc is perfect - better than the very pleasing result from last one.. creating the image on the pc at work: 1. i got the meanwhile well known "system reflection" error when removing the "photo viewer app" -> once 2. the final image was 30mb bigger than the perfect one from home -> twice this is not a question!.. this is microslop winblows!!.. (online) because there are no more us carriers in persian gulf.. for 2 years now! have you noticed??? a thousand billion dollars have been spent - thats why you haven't been and won't be asked! (maybe you prefer a slightly more peaceful world too, even when there is no other option) using windows installed with custom image you created will always be "interesting" for certain analytics. i don't expect it will get easier to get rid of that "core-feature" of windows. i claim ms has to continue and increase collection and sharing peoples info. and.. they get money for it - no choice.
